  • Serves: 15


450g self-rising flour

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

100g cold butter, diced

2 tbsp caster sugar

284ml pot buttermilk

2 tbsp milk

2 tsp vanilla extract

220g French Glacé Cherries, some halved and some quartered (no smaller than quartered)


Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the flour, ½ tsp salt, bicarb and butter into a bowl and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix in the sugar.

Quickly mix in the buttermilk, a splash of milk, vanilla and cherries and bring together to form a soft dough. Press out onto a lightly floured surface, to about 3cm thick. Cut out with 6-7cm cutters.

Transfer to a lightly floured baking sheet, brush with the remaining milk and bake for 10-12 mins until golden and well risen. Serve with clotted cream and jam.
